Congratulations to Lily Mielke for an outstanding job with the Washington Junior All State Orchestra this past weekend! Way to go Lily…we are proud of you!

Upcoming concert:

Monday, 2/25 at 7:30 pm in the PHS Auditorium. Students should be at PHS no later than 7:00 pm in their concert black and white. This concert will feature 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Orchestra students as well as both PHS Orchestras. LMS students will meet in the choir room for tuning and warm up.

After performing, students should put away instruments, and then go into the auditorium to listen to the remaining groups. Students should NOT hang out in the choir room or roam about in the school.

Concert clothing expectations: Black pants or skirt, black hosiery, black shoes, white shirt or blouse. All black dresses are also acceptable. Please adhere to these concert clothing guidelines.

The 7th and 8th grade orchestra students will be participating in the Southeast Washington Music Educator’s Association Large Ensemble festival in Palouse on Thursday, March 21st. I am hoping that some parents would be willing to transport cellos and basses for us to and from the event and/or chaperone. Please email me if you are able to help us out! I don’t have an exact time schedule at this point, but should know by the first week of March.

Concert date change for 7th and 8th grade Orchestra students: The May 23rd concert has been changed to June 4thdue to a scheduling conflict. The concert will still be at 7:30 pm in the Main Gym of LMS. I apologize for any inconvenience.
